Labor in America Does Not Pay

Working used to be a proud expression of manhood. Since the days of “Rosie the Riveter”, mothers and daughters joined the work force in mass. Building infrastructure, developing commercial enterprises and producing an endless assembly line of goods led to the greatest expansion of the middle class in American history. In a mere fifty years of planned and coordinated downsizing and out sourcing, the only outcome from honest work is the sweat from your brow. Folks still expend energy and labor at tasks, but few earn a living wage from engaging in industry or commerce.

Honor the Memory of THE Patriot

The soul of the American Revolution was George Washington, but the spirit was Patrick Henry. We all know the greatness of our First President, but have you read the speech that set the tone of our struggle for Liberty from this other Virginian? Each year we honor those who have fallen in defense of our country. But do we fully appreciate the essence of what our bravest patriots fought and died to create? The words of Patrick Henry ring true today, just as they did during his life. Read the entire speech and tell me if the struggle is any different today? Patrick Henry spoke these words on March 23, 1775 and says more about America than all the writing of those of us who revere the purpose of our vision as a Nation.

National ID

If the government can't give us an accurate count on illegal aliens, do you really think that these folks will line up to get a picture of their retina? Get Real! Close the 'Open Borders' with serious immigration control, and let ordinary citizens enjoy their dignity.

The Choice For Political Freedom

The existential conflict in all societies stems from the natural urge of individuals to be free, as the ruling factions seek to limit citizen choices and their inborn drive.  The rationale that governments have a legitimate function and role to regulate and enforce civic conduct, so that public order can be maintained, is the universal axiom used for justifying the State.  If there is an organic purpose to maintain a civil order, does it automatically follow that the desired formula for compliance rests within the mechanisms established by government?  The posing of this question and familiar popular reaction reflects the intense discomfort most individuals have dealing with innate essentials.

The march into internment advances

The past year 2004 started off as a time to go fishing and ends in a tsunami wave of calamity. The relief efforts are portrayed as assistance after the effect of a natural disaster, but the real story for the year is the onslaught of refugee  camps of a very different kind. The condition of the globe is much more at risk from political discord than from an environmental catastrophe. If the planet can rally to aid the suffering from the wrath of mother nature, why is it virtually impossible to resolve the differences from man made conflicts?

Globalist Gangster's Nevada Land Grab

The Agenda 21 model is evident for the entire world to see as the ChiComs and their treasonous political class partners, collude to drive off Cliven Bundy and his family, who have been ranching in the area since the 1800s. Forget about the dodge about the endangered tortoise, those trumpeted up $1.1 million in unpaid grazing fees, or even water rights. Federal Court property rights decisions and the court order in the Bundy case, only muddy the water about what is really going on. Fundamental civil liberty protections against a tyrannical bureaucratic government gone amuck may seem to be the main story to many, but when you delve into the monumental financial motives behind this land grab, the worse is yet to come.

The “Gang of Eight” Immigration Constituency

The illegal immigration invasion has been ongoing for decades. All efforts to shut the door on unrestricted entry are "all hat no cattle". The notion that it is impossible to secure the territorial borderlines is an insult to every native born citizen. The dirty policy that is not much of a secret is that the establishment wants an influx of low wageworkers that drives down the cost of labor. The consistent pattern of domestic de-industrialization is a core objective of globalism. Few issues are more in the national interest than managing a rational immigration system. The public consistently registers their disgust with the negative impact that "Open Borders" imposes. However, for all their discontent, the political-corporatist league of dishonesty continues with their game of money-spinning manipulation.

A Fractured Conservative Movement

There is nothing new about rugged individualists disagreeing.  In some respects such divergence is quite normal and appropriate.  Whether there is anything that can be remotely labeled a patriot movement, to begin with is certainly a valid area of discussion.  But what happens when supposed like- minded world views clash to the extent that eating one’s own becomes an obsession?

The Dubious U.S. State Department

Once again Pat Robertson has stirred a hornets nest. Commenting on Joel Mowbray’s book - Dangerous Diplomacy: How the State Department Endangers America's Security - the broadcaster offered this assessment: "I read your book. When you get through, you say, 'If I could just get a nuclear device inside Foggy Bottom, I think that's the answer.' I mean, you get through this, and you say, 'We've got to blow that thing up"'. He was referring to that bastion of the American Way - the preverbal core of the establishment bureaucracy itself - the U.S. Department of State.

The Nasty Little Secret of Immigration

The migration crisis is ground zero for the real war from foreigners. Successive administrations have surrendered the borders to the madness of internal toxic turmoil. The notion of congenial assimilation, denies the reality of incompatible fusion. The taboo culture abhors honesty. Polite political society won’t tolerate telling the truth. The only speech  allowed must parrot the indivisibility of amalgamation. This flood of unwelcome immigrates is not fabricating tempered steel. What is being forged is pig iron. That smelting process produces a pool of brittle fractures. What remains is fast becoming a compost pile of rubbish.

U.N. vs U.S.

Central to this discussion is the concept of national sovereignty. Those who desire to limit, restrict and diminish the independence of nations, are enthusiastic proponents of this 'New World Order'. The scale and magnitude of this primary conflict cannot be dismissed. A country has a right or it doesn't. Natural law towards nations is the same canon that it is towards individuals. If sovereignty is denied among nations, 'all things are possible'. Countries can and do, at times, relinquish portions of their self-rule. Policy considerations may be seen as beneficial in so doing, but to intimate that temporary subordination, voids the absolute authority for autonomy, is at the core of this dispute.

The Henry David Thoreau of Philosophy

Civil disobedience would never be the same after Henry David Thoreau - it became a mission.  Although for Thoreau a sense of duty is not in a crusade to change the world, but to achieve authenticity for oneself.  The injustice of the world is a consistent fact of the human condition.  Yet wrongs and righting them seems to be the calling for a culture of altruism.  How much obnoxious revulsion has been planted from the seeds of philanthropy?  The disconnect from the essence of Thoreau has produced more branches of evil from social intrusion than substance for striking at the root.  Was this man a philosopher of worldly fundamental nature or was he merely an icon for non-conformity living?  Who is the Thoreau of Walden and what does his philosophy mean for our age?
